When you use multiple databases, there's a problem with external programs.

External program definitions for menus and toolbars are stored in Thumbs9.Config, but the actual program definitions are stored in the database.

Consequently, when you load a different database, TP9 still shows these external programs in the menu and in your toolbar, but they do not work.

I can think of multiple workarounds, such as not loading menu and toolbar entries for external programs if no matching definitions exist in the database, but it would be nice if TP9 would offer (once) to copy the external programs to the other database when you create or load a new database.

Thank you Daan. I will test around and speak with Phillip about this issue. We will address it in the next build.

Kind regards,
Laura
